Interdisciplinary researcher and award-winning teacher with a background in professional marketing. My research explores the impact of new technologies, and the philosophical relationship between humans and machines, with a particular focus on war, robots, AI and drones.

Prior to my life in academia I have worked in the diverse fields of video games, healthcare and higher education.
